Runoff polls close at 8 p.m. ET. Rep. Martha Roby (R) faces former Rep. Bobby Bright (R) after finishing first in the June 5 primary by 11 points. Results can be found here.

DOWN ON THE FARM. Roby is emphasizing her rural credentials, which “have been suggested as a weak spot” for her as she is from Montgomery and Bright is from the rural Wiregrass region. One Republican strategist “noted Roby will need to turn out the votes south and east of Montgomery, where she underperformed in the primary” despite winning 13 of 16 counties in the district.
